Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Hey since we're spying on everyone, can we go ahead and get to the part where we spy on a

bunch of people (I use that term loosely) in Texas, for example? Or Wyoming? or other places where known cabals hostile to the US government reside? At least we'd be focused on real threats to US democratic state....

1. Actually, you can. Not...

the gummint, but you can set up cameras pretty much anywhere public where you can walk around want.

Did you see 60 minutes tonight? We already know about Google watching everyone, but now there are private cameras out there practicing facial recognition and the the plan is any time you walk into a store, they know you're there and can direct your buying.

And it gets worse...

NSA ain't got nuttin' on Target.

4. They can do all that kind of stuff they want, I'm busy getting rid of loyalty programs at grocery

and convenience stores as we speak. I guess if they don't connect the dots between the surveillance apparatus and customer's reluctance to participate by shopping with them, then it's just their loss. I don't need what they're selling anyway.

5. Well, the FBI did infiltrate some "patriot" groups

I'm willing to bet they used surveillance in that process.

8. Perhaps. I see now what I did. I was just trying to make a funny about Darth, KKKarl, and ilk.

I'm actually not sure on the Michigan Militia thing. I guess I've long since forgotten about that. Gotta go look it up now.
